The Brighton Beach

If you think of Brighton, you will probably think of the beach and that’s no wonder. Brighton was voted one of the top 10 city beach break destinations in the world and every summer it is packed with tourists from in and outside of the UK who want to enjoy the sun. The famous Brighton Pier brings in even more fun, with various food and drink outlets, fairground attractions and the Palace of Fun arcade. During the winter it’s a great place to get some fresh air and to escape the busy city life. 

The Lanes

The Lanes are a true paradise if you are looking for something unique. The narrow streets form a labyrinth full of quirky little shops, charming pubs and some great music stores. 

The North Laine

The North Laine is the most bohemian and alternative neighbourhood of Brighton with organic food shops, second hand boutiques, street artists, avant-garde cafés, second hand bookshops and all kind of bazaars where collectors can find vintage treasures and authentic relic.

The Royal Pavilion

Two streets away from The Lanes you’ll find the Royal Pavilion, an impressive palace that once was the seaside retreat of George IV. The contrast between the Hindu style outside and the Chinese influenced interior makes the Pavilion one of the most exotic and extravagant palaces in Europe. A must-visit!
